Or should I say: Stranded in Fair Isle?
Pattern: Olafsdottir by Sunday Knits
My yarn choices?
Classic Elite Waterlily in Celestial (left) for the snowflakes
and Bramble (right) for the body and background.
Of course, I cannot start this until I finish this other little Fair Isle project:
Pattern: Stripes, checks, and curlicues hoodie vest by Kathleen Taylor
Yarn: Mini Mochi in 103 (left) and 107 (right) below:
This is a fun pattern that is really easy. Significantly easier than it appears. Just a few more inches and the body with be complete, then I will need to steek the armholes, reinforce the neckline and cut them, before seaming the shoulders and picking up stitches for the hoodie. After all that is done, I will have to steek the front, too! Instead of a zipper, Wee One has asked for a series of buttons along the front. Fortunately, I just happened to have some she loved!
The ones in the foreground are a bit washed out. The true color of the these bronze-like buttons is best represented by the single button in the center. They really do look nice. I am so proud of her. She selected the yarns and the buttons. Yay for Wee!
Now, if she would just knit the thing!
